Spent 7 hours here on first visit, family of four (children 11 & 13). Visited on a Monday in July and arrived at 10am, not busy and no queues. Car park was 7 Euro which was steep. A bit busier as the day went on but still minimal queues for rides.

Returned to our car for eats at lunchtime (stamp on hand to get back in.), didn't buy any food and didn't watch any shows.

Great theming of Egypt etc. and lovely landscaping with flowers and plants. Fairly clean but spa area had scum on surface of water in places and water was milky, didn't inspire cleanliness. Regardless, children had great fun in the pools for around an hour in the middle of the day. There were changing rooms and lockers available but we didn't use them as the children got changed at the car at lunchtime.

There was only one route through the park which was a bit of a pain, no way of taking a short-cut back to the car or to a favourite ride. This seems to be caused by part of the park being separated out to make Iberia Park.

There were plenty of cooling down areas with water sprays and staff wandering about with back-pack sprayers. Also, ample clean toilet facilities throughout the park with drinking fonts.

Rides were limited, particularly adrenaline ones. Titanide was aggressively jittery, not pleasant. Colossus was violently bumpy. We love Alton Towers, Blackpool BP, Disneyland etc. but these two rides are far too punishing to be pleasurable. A real shame as these two rides look very promising. In addition, Inferno was closed since a recent accident (the closure was not indicated at the entrance).

The two log flumes were well worth the visit as were a few other rides including flight of the Phoenix all of which we rode multiple times.

As mentioned, rides were limited but there's still plenty of fun to be had, just don't expect too much from the rides on offer. Review the rides on the TM website first so you know what to expect. The entry cost is fairly expensive given the quality of the rides available.

Excellent place, but slightly disappointed that some of the rides were closed at time of our visit but since have found out that this may have been due to an accident occurring.

My wife, 10 year old daughter and I visited the park during our recent visit to Benidorm and were very impressed. We had purchased combined tickets for here, Aqualandia and Mundomar which worked out to be about £55 per adult (kids a bit cheaper) or £18 per adult per attraction which we thought was very reasonable.

The park is about 5km outside of Benidorm itself but is served by a regular bus service (every 15 mins) which costs 3,00 euro per person in total to get there and back which means that getting there is cheap and easy

Queue times were non existent, we were not sure if this was due to the fatality that had occurred at the park about a week before our arrival or the fact that we went on a main changeover day, Saturday. We were obviously wary about the accident that had occurred but found the park to be modern and well run

There were a lot rides, particularly for older children (10+) and adults. The log flumes and wooden roller were both excellent and worth a mention. There were lots of other very good rides also and something for everyone

All in all a very good day out

Had 3 days in this park and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was very quiet and we barely queued more than 10 minutes for each ride, most rides we could stay on again. Although this was probably due to the accident the week before which resulted in Inferno being closed. We went on all the rides and really enjoyed them. We really liked the Minotaur shooting ride and also The Flight of the Phoenix drop tower. There are also plenty of rides for children or people who don't like big rollercoasters. This park has lots of covered shelters which spray a mist of water throughout the day which was absolutely brilliant due to the boiling heat! There was also a few men going around and squirting water at you to cool you down. There is also two lagoon pools which are lovely to relax in so make sure you bring a costume. Food was a bit pricey but about what you expect for a theme park. You could get through the whole park in a day although we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days and didn't get bored at all. There are loads of shows on throughout the day as well. They also have 2 two-month-old lion cubs which you can have your photo taken with. They are adorable! The park is also well themed, the statues and decorations have so much detail and effort into them, it really sets the scene for Egypt, Rome and Greece. I would definitely recommend a visit and hope to return one day.

Yesterday my family and I went to Terra mitica and it was awesome! We went round the whole park from 3-8pm. All the rides we really fun and was very very safe. The cafes in there have good food and I had a waffle with chocolate sauce on which tasted AMAZING. The whole park was very clean and good mixture for big children,adults and little children. So altogether would defiantly recommend it .
